3 Common Misconceptions When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

I quickly want to discuss a few common misconceptions that car-accident victims have after being involved in an accident. You might have recently been involved in an accident and you might have these concerns as well.

The first one is, “I can’t afford to hire an attorney.” The second one is, “I should wait to hire an attorney.” And the third one is, “I could use my real estate or divorce attorney to handle my personal injury case.” These misconceptions can be dire to a car accident case. So, let’s dive into them.

At the Law Offices of Solomon Aminov, there are no upfront costs for a personal injury case. Fees are only collected at the end when the case settles. And it’s out of that settlement amount that the law office gets their fee. If for any reason the case doesn’t settle, it’s not a penny out of your pocket. Also, insurance companies tend to call car accident victims trying to get a recorded statement, which they will later use against you to diminish the value of your case.

The second misconception is, “I should wait to hire an attorney.” This is such a dangerous misconception to have in mind. And the reason is because there are certain deadlines that need to be met in the beginning of the case.

And the third huge common misconception is, “I could use my real estate or divorce attorney to handle my personal injury case.” Now, a personal injury attorney knows the personal injury procedure, knows how to deal with the insurance companies when it comes to car accidents or trip and falls or slip and falls. A personal injury attorney is skilled to negotiate with the insurance companies in regard to injuries and to get you full compensation – fast.
